3.0 von 5 Sternen thorough but not too helpful 15. Dezember 2009

I understand that different things work (or don't work) for different people, so I am sure that for some folks this book is a saver. At the beginning I was dead set on putting the twins on a schedule, but it just didn't work for my girls. The book is VERY detailed and plans a day for you up to a minute ("the twins have to be fed by no later than 2:45 pm" -- a typical quote), so you are left to wonder what is going to happen when you deviate from the plan. It presupposes that you are with the twins pretty much 24/7 with nothing else to do than to feed them, bathe them (every day! -- who does that?), change their clothes, etc. The directions are very rigid and the tome very authoritarian (in a British way, I guess), with little allowances for people's varying circumstances (like I am not going to bring my twins upstairs to their dark room just for a 45 minute nap in the afternoon -- they are perfectly happy sleeping in a pack-n-play in a daylight-lit room). And what if your twins don't want to eat at exactly 2:45 pm? (well, that will put them off the next feed, according to the author, and apparently it's a huge disaster). What I am saying is that there is very little in the way of suggestions as to what to do if tings don't go according to author's plan (which of course they never do). And how can one expect that people (babies included) will follow an exact same routine every single day? -- just look at yourself: some days you are more sleepy, some days less; depending on the weather you are either more or less energetic; some days you eat more often but a bit and some days you are happy with three large meals -- and as I have discovered, same thing applies to babies, so the best thing is to be open every day for something new and just roll with the punches.

1.0 von 5 Sternen far too rigid and guilt enducing! 14. Mai 2012
Von twin_mummy - Veröffentlicht auf
I received this as a gift and thought it would be the answer to my prayers...oh how I was wrong. The routines did not work for my newborns but I kept trying and trying to implement her ideas. Not only were they totally unrealistic ( no time at all for parents to do anything except baby stuff-- forget eating, showering or sleeping) but I felt so utterly guilty and hopeless when they didn't work. My advice: throw this book in the recycling like I did after 4 weeks of trying and just go with the flow. Your kids will tell you what they need and eventually they will start to sleep through the night. My daughter is 3 months and she is just starting to sleep 8 hours at night whereas my son still wakes every 3 hours so it just goes to show every baby is different and you CANNOT force a routine on them. Trial and error works best. Good luck mums!

My twins are almost 8 months old now and they have been on Ford's routines since 3 mo old. I work and I simply didn't have the luxury of doing things "on demand". We were using the Baby Whisperer before we switched to Ford, but the BW was simply not detailed enough, and her sleep advice wasn't working for us. BTW, for sleep advice, Ferber's "Solve your child's sleep problems" is the best. Going back to Ford. Her detailed scheduled helped us immensely to structure our girls' day. It also helped us understand early weaning and how to go through with it. It contains details on everything that you need to know as a new parent: how much does the baby need to sleep during the day, how much formula vs. solids they need to eat for their age, etc. The prep chapters on the wardrobe, how many items of different type to get for twins and tips like using bassinet sheets in the cribs to catch spit ups were super helpful too. The fact that girls were on a schedule also helps us manage our nanny and helps her do her job better, because she knows exactly what she needs to do and when. ( If you are thinking, sheesh, this person has a nanny... Well, in Seattle, it's cheaper to hire a nanny to take care of 2 children f/t than to pay for 2 kids at daycare).

In short - if you are expecting twins, I recommend that you at least read this book even if you are not into scheduling (but with twins... trust me, schedule is the only way to keep your sanity). You will learn a lot of useful information from this book that you WON"T learn from any special twin parenting classes. I regret wasting several hundred dollars on twin parenting classes at UW Medical Center in Seattle - I didn't learn a single thing, worse, now that I have been a parent of twins for 8 months, I realize how CLUELESS the instructor was. Read this book instead.

This is a great book for parents of multiples that need help getting their children on a schedule. They have actual schedules that you can use or modify for your children. It really helped me in the beginning.
